TWENTY-NINTH ANNUAL 

Directory of Labor Organizations 
in Massachusetts, 1930 



INTRODUCTION 

The matter presented herewith constitutes the Twenty-ninth Annual 
Directory of Labor Organizations in Massachusetts, the first directory of this 
character having been published in August, 1902. 1 Labor organizations, within 
the meaning of this publication, are groups of wage-earners organized for the 
purpose of bettering conditions of workmen through negotiations with em- 
ployers, and, to this end, are usually parties to either written or verbal agree- 
ments concerning wages and conditions of employment. 

The present edition consists of four divisions, as follows : 

I. "National and International Organizations," having one or more affili- 
ated local unions in the United States (pages 3-8) ; 

II. "State and District Councils," consisting of organizations composed 
of delegates from local unions whose members are in trades of a like character 
within a definite district comprising more than a single city or town (pages 
9-13); 

III. "Central Labor Unions and Local Councils," composed of delegates 
from local unions in the same locality, not necessarily in similar trades (pages 
15-20) ; 

IV. "Local Trade Unions," composed of wage-earners in a single locality 
directly associated in what may be called the "unit body" of organization 
(pages 21-79). 

At the close of December each year a general canvass is made for the 
data which appear in this directory. Each National and International Labor 
Organization known to be 1 in existence in the United States (see Section I) 
is requested to furnish the Department with the name and address of its 
corresponding official and a list of any Massachusetts locals affiliated, together 
with the names and. addresses of certain officials of such local unions. From 
the State and District Councils (see Section II) and the Central Labor Unions 
and Local Councils (see Section III) in Massachusetts, somewhat similar data 
are secured. Each local organization known to be in existence, whether or 
not chartered by an International or a National organization, is canvassed, and 
detailed information secured as to the time and place of meeting, the names 
and addresses of corresponding and other officials, and other relevant data (see 
Section IV). 2 

Officials of those organizations from whom no report was received in re- 
sponse to the original request were visited by the field agents of the Division, 
and the necessary data secured. There were also ascertained from various 
sources facts with reference to the forming of new unions and the disbanding

of those formerly active. At the time of going to press, there were incor- 
porated in this issue any changes in officials, in the time and place of meeting, 
etc., which had come to the attention of the Department since the original 
canvass was made. Subsequent changes cannot, of course, be made in this 
report, but are on record where known. Officials of organizations listed herein 
are urged to advise the Department of any such changes as they occur. The 
Department makes every effort to issue the directory as early in the year as 
possible, as much of its usefulness depends upon the promptness with which 
it is issued. In this endeavor we have had the cordial co-operation of the labor 
officials throughout the State.

Time Rates of Wages and Hours of Labor in 
Massachusetts, 1930. 

INTRODUCTION. 

This report, showing rates effective July 1, 1930, constitutes the twenty-first of a 
series of Labor Bulletins of this nature. 1 In the major portion of the report, 
Section "A. Industries and Trades," are considered those data which relate to 
basic time rates and conditions of employment affecting members of labor organi- 
zations in Massachusetts as reported to the Department, on a prescribed form, 
by officials of the local unions. The information so secured is occasionally sup- 
plemented by data from other official sources. In the remainder of the report 
are presented similar data concerning employment in two types of governmental 
service (Section "B. Public Service") and in five branches of "Communication" 
(Section C). The rates herein recorded are comparable with those in prior re- 
ports' of a similar nature, and, together with such rates, are indicative of the trend 
of wages. 

The annual collection of data relating to time rates of wages and hours of labor 
in Massachusetts is an important function of the Division of Statistics. With 
minor exceptions, rates or schedules presented in this report became effective as 
a result of verbal or written agreements between employers and organized em- 
ployees. The reporting date for the collection of this information has been fixed 
as July 1 in all except theatrical employment, in which the beginning of the fall 
contract season has been designated, the rates shown continuing in most cases 
for the remainder of the year. Notations are made in the form of footnotes of 
any known changes which occur after the reporting date, but such changes are 
not frequent, as it is the usual practice to renew or change agreements in the late 
winter or in the spring months. 

In some industries, particularly the textile industry and the boot and shoe in- 
dustry, the prevailing method of wage payment is on the basis of piece-work prices. 
These prices show such diversity and lack of uniformity that they are not here 
considered, but rates are given for such occupations as are on a time basis. 

The rates of wages as tabulated in this bulletin should not be confounded with 
actual earnings. The former are the rates agreed upon for a specified period of 
time, viz., an hour, day, or week; the latter result from the number of hours 
worked at these specified rates. An increase in earnings is not effected simply 
by an increase in rates, as a scarcity or abundance of work enters largely into the 
matter of earnings. 

The method of presentation adopted is fundamentally the same for all industries, 
but in certain tables, as in theatrical employment, the box headings have been 
changed in order to more clearly present the particular type of employment being 
considered. The basic units of payment for all occupations in a specified industry 
or trade are usually identical, that is, by the hour, day, or week. All relevant 
information has been shown in tabular form so far as possible, but many of the 
provisions of employment cannot thus be indicated, and are accordingly briefly 
summarized in explanatory footnotes accompanying each table. 

Where overtime work is necessary, it is an almost universal practice to pay the 
regular straight-time rate plus a given portion of that rate. These "overtime 
rates" are generally shown in symbolic form, as follows: 1 T = straight time; 

T = time and one-quarter; 134 T=time and one-half; 2 T = double time; 
3 T = triple time. 



1 The first of this series of reports was issued in 1910 by the then Massachusetts Bureau of Statistics as 
Part I of the Forty-first Annual Report on the Statistics of Labor. Subsequent reports were issued as 
Labor Bulletins by that Bureau and by the Department of Labor and Industries, to which department 
were transferred, on December 1, 1919, certain of the functions of the former Bureau of Statistics. The 
Labor Bulletins were as follows: 1911, No. 91; 1912, No. 96; 1913, No. 97; 1914, No. 107; 1915, Nos. 114 
and 115; 1916, No. 120; 1917, No. 124; 1918, No. 128; 1919, No. 131; 1920, No. 134; 1921, No. 137; 
1922, No. 138; 1923, No. 141; 1924, No. 144; 1925, No. 147; 1926, No. 150; 1927, No. 153; 1928, No. 155; 
1929, No. 158.

1 Work 9 hours on Friday. 

2 From September 1 to December 31, all overtime, except on holidays, is at the rate of time and one-half. 

3 Inexperienced men receive $25 for first three months. 

4 In nearly all localities a weekly wage of a stated amount is guaranteed, and also a bonus consisting of a 
portion of the weekly receipts exceeding a specified sum taken in by each barber. Thus, in every place cited,

6 The days the shops are closed for a half-day are indicated by the daily schedules. Where shops remain 
open all day every day, journeymen are individually granted a half-holiday each week (usually on Monday or 
Thursday), or an entire day off every two weeks. In case the whole day is taken once in two weeks, the total 
working hours for the two weeks, minus the day off, are added, and the average is shown as the working hours 
for each week. 

6 Men are individually granted a half-day off each week, beginning at 12 o'clock noon. 

7 For a single day, $5; for a full day's work on Saturday or a day before a holiday $8 and one-half the receipts 
over $10. 

8 Men are individually granted a half-day off each week, beginning at 12 o'clock noon, or one day off every 
two weeks. 

9 With tips. In shops with no-tip system, journeymen shall be paid $10 more per week than the prevailing 
wage scale.

B. PUBLIC SERVICE. 
Introductory Note. The data shown in connection with Public Service are pre- 
sented in two sections, each devoted to a distinct type of service. In Federal 
Service the schedules cover manual workers employed in establishments in Massa- 
chusetts which are under the direction of the United States Navy and the Ordnance 
Department, United States Army. In Municipal Service the schedules refer to 
"laborers, workmen, and mechanics" who are on the pay-rolls of cities and towns 
in the State. 

I. 

Federal Service. 
United States Navy Yard and Naval Ammunition Depot. 

The rates of wages and conditions of employment shown for the employees of 
the United States Navy Yard, Boston, and the United States Naval Ammunition 
Depot, Hingham, were compiled from the "Schedule of Wages for Civil Employees 
under the Naval Establishments," for the calendar year 1930, issued by the Navy 
Department. 

The overtime, Sunday, holiday, and night work rates of pay for Navy Yard and 
Naval Ammunition Depot employees are as follows: 

"For work in excess of eight hours on the same calendar day, performed by rea- 
son of an extraordinary emergency, the schedule rate of pay, plus 50 per cent ad- 
ditional, shall be allowed. 

"Those ordinarily employed on a seven-hour day basis who are required to work 
overtime in excess of eight hours on the same calendar day shall be paid for each 
hour of such overtime one-seventh of their schedule pay plus 50 per cent additional. 

"For work on Sunday not exceeding eight hours, performed under proper author- 
ity, the schedule rate of pay, plus 50 per cent additional, shall be allowed. 

"For work on legal holidays not exceeding eight hours, performed under proper 
authority, the schedule rate of pay, plus 50 per cent additional, shall be allowed, 
and, in addition thereto, gratuity pay for the legal holiday. 

"For work in excess of eight hours on Sundays or legal holidays, performed by 
reason of an extraordinary emergency, 50 per cent additional to the Sunday or 
holiday rate of pay shall be allowed. 

"Work performed between midnight Saturday and midnight Sunday shall be 
computed as Sunday work and paid for at Sunday rates. 

"For work on Saturdays during the periods covered by Executive orders of May 
9 and June 7, 1927, providing for certain half holidays, employees who regularly 
work eight hours shall receive only their schedule rate of pay for work not exceed- 
ing eight hours; employees who regularly work seven hours shall receive only 
their schedule rate of pay for work not exceeding seven hours. 

"Employees who work regularly on Sunday shall be required to take an equal 
amount of time off during the week preceding or succeeding such Sunday. Employ- 
ees shall rotate on Sunday work as far as practicable. 

"All employees whose whole time of work or any part thereof is between the hours 
of 6 p.m. and 7 a.m., shall be paid 5 cents per hour in addition to their schedule 
rate of pay for work performed between the hours mentioned, except that no 
employee shall receive extra pay for night work for which he is paid Sunday, 
holiday, or overtime rates of pay." 

United States Armory and Arsenal. 

Employees in both the United States Armory, Springfield, and the United States 
Arsenal, Watertown, come within the jurisdiction of the Ordnance Department, 
United States Army, and the data here presented were secured directly from that 
Department. 

The regular schedule calls for eight hours employment per day for six days, or 
a total of 48 hours per week, except that from the second Saturday in June to the 
second Saturday in September, Saturday half-holidays are granted with pay. 
Employees are entitled to 30 working days leave of absence during the year. This 
is taken as arranged by the immediate commanding officer, either by a half -holiday 
regularly every Saturday during other than the summer months, as at the Spring- 
field Armory, or by a Saturday half -holiday or a full day off, as at the Watertown 



78 P.D. 15, 

Arsenal, any such time off with pay to apply against the annual leave, the balance 
of the leave to be taken during the summer months.

II. 

Municipal Service. 

As in previous years, a questionnaire was sent to the mayors of the 39 cities and 
the chairmen of the boards of selectmen of the 29 largest towns in Massachusetts, 
requesting information regarding the rates of wages paid to ' 'laborers, workmen 
and mechanics" in municipal service, as of July 1, 1930. Returns were received 
from the entire 68 municipalities canvassed, and there is presented herewith a 
tabulation of the rates of wages and hours of labor in effect on the date named. 

The data in the table which follows are arranged alphabetically by municipalities 
(the cities in larger and the towns in smaller sized type) ; by departments or other 
similar branches of municipal service, where known; and then by occupational 
groups thereunder, following five general classifications, namely: Mechanics, 
chauffeurs and teamsters, road workers, laborers, and engineers and firemen. The 
occupations considered are those which come within the provisions of the General 
Laws of Massachusetts with reference to "laborers, workmen and mechanics," 
in public employment. A number of municipalities find it advisable to let out on 
contract certain types of construction and other work which they are either not 
equipped to perform or which may be performed more economically under such 
arrangements. Rates paid those employed on such contract work do not appear 
in this tabulation. 



80 P.D. 15. 

Municipal Service — Continued. 

In each municipality, data with reference to the hours of labor appear in brief 
form after the tabulation of the established rates. Notations are also made regard- 
ing any special conditions of employment. 

The maximum hours of labor in municipal employment are prescribed by the 
General Laws of Massachusetts (chapter one hundred and forty-nine). These 
laws, quotations from which appear below, become operative in whole or in part 
when all or certain sections thereof are accepted by the municipalities. No state- 
ment describing the action taken in this respect by the individual municipalities 
is here presented. 

"The service of all laborers, workmen and mechanics ('. . . engineers shall be 
regarded as mechanics ...')... is hereby restricted to eight hours in any one 
day . . . and to forty-eight hours in any one week. 

"No officer of . . . any such town, no such contractor or sub-contractor or 
other person whose duty it is to employ, direct or control the service of such 
laborers, workmen or mechanics shall require or permit any such laborer, work- 
man or mechanic to work more than eight hours in any one day, ... or more 
than forty-eight hours in any one week, except in cases of extraordinary emergency. 

"It shall not be a violation of section thirty or thirty-one (above extracts are 
quoted from these sections) if, in the event of a Saturday half-holiday being given 
to a laborer, workman or mechanic, his hours of labor upon other working days 
are increased sufficiently to make a total of forty-eight hours for his week's work. 

"In any town not subject to section thirty or thirty-one nine hours shall con- 
stitute a day's work for all laborers, workmen and mechanics employed by or on 
behalf of such town." 

In the matter of wage payments and overtime, there are several generally ac- 
cepted methods of payments, as follows: 

Those persons employed on an hourly basis receive pay for the actual number 
of hours worked. 

Employees on a daily basis are paid a definite wage for each day worked, whether 
a full week-day or a Saturday half -holiday, but, in the case of a 44-hour weekly 
schedule calling for only 4 hours' employment on Saturday, the full daily wage is 
usually not paid for work on Saturday morning unless the employee shall have 
worked a given number of hours (optional with the municipality) during the first 
five days of the week. Employees working the full schedule therefore receive for 
a full week's services six times the daily wage. 

In the event that the schedule calls for 48 hours' employment during the week, 
special daily schedules may be arranged to provide for a Saturday half-holiday 
without lessening the total number of hours of service required to be performed 
per week (see third extract quoted in the section just preceding). A schedule 
quite commonly adopted calls for 8H hours for each of the first five days of the 
week and 4% hours on Saturday. The daily wage for each day worked is one- 
sixth of the weekly wage for 48 hours' employment. The re-arrangement of the 
schedule of hours to provide for a Saturday half-holiday does not affect the daily 
wage payable unless the employee shall have worked insufficient hours to entitle 
him to a full week's pay. If he has worked only part time, he receives for each 
hour worked one-eighth of the established daily wage. 

Those employed on a weekly basis receive a stipulated sum for a given number 
of hours of service per week. When less than a full week is worked, a propor- 
tionate part of the weekly wage is paid. 

When overtime is necessary ". . .in cases of extraordinary emergency," em- 
ployees are paid on a special basis under regulations adopted by the governing 
bodies of the municipalities or under rulings of the departmental heads. If over- 
time should be necessary on a continuing job, not classified as an emergency, the 
working time of those so engaged is arranged so that the maximum hours for a 
week's work may not be exceeded and the regular weekly earnings are not increased 
because of such work. In certain classes of service a limited number of persons 
are employed on Sunday, and are either paid on a special basis or else the schedule 
of hours is arranged so that no more than 48 hours are worked in any seven days. 

In the case of holidays, special rulings are made by the municipalities. Perma- 
nent employees are usually granted holidays with pay. Those actually employed 
o n such days are paid on a special basis or allowed time off in lieu of overtime pay.

Northbridge. 

The town of Northbridge is unique in that it does 
not directly employ those who perform the work 
ordinarily done by municipal employees. With the 
approval of the Board of Selectmen, one contractor, 
under the supervision of the Superintendent of 
Streets, proceeds with the necessary street, sewer, and 
similar work, and renders a bill to the town at stated 
intervals or at the conclusion of special jobs. This 
contractor pays his own men and their names do not 
appear on the town's payrolls. This arrangement 
differs from the usual contract in that no sum is 
named prior to performing the usual town work. 
On other than the ordinary class of work, bids are 
called for and contracts let, as is done in other 
municipalities.

C. COMMUNICATION. 
Introductory Note. The data set forth in connection with Communication are 
presented in five sections, each devoted to a specific class of service. The informa- 
tion in Section I has reference to those occupations which are peculiar to railroad 
service and which relate primarily to the operation of trains and to the maintenance 
of rolling stock and equipment; in Section II, railway express employees are con- 
sidered; in Section III, data are given with regard to those engaged in the operation 
and maintenance of street railway lines; in Section IV are presented data with 
reference to passenger bus lines, which now have become an important factor in 
transportation; and in Section V, telephone employees are considered. 



I. 

Steam Railroad Service. 

The three trunk lines operating out of Boston, namely, the Boston & Albany 
Railroad, the Boston & Maine Railroad, and the New York, New Haven & Hart- 
ford Railroad, in their dealings with employees concerning rates of pay, rules, and 
working conditions, are now governed by the provisions of the Railway Labor Act 
passed by the United States Congress May 11, 1926. 

The Boston, Revere Beach & Lynn Railroad is not classed as a "common carrier" 
and therefore does not come within the scope of the Railway Labor Act above 
referred to. The Boston Terminal Company included in this report is organized 
for the purpose of taking over certain services in the South Terminal and vicinity. 
The Boston & Albany Railroad and the New York, New Haven & Hartford Rail- 
road, both of which terminate in that station, pay their proportionate share for such 
services. This arrangement avoids duplication of effort and greatly expedites the 
movement of trains, freight, etc. 

During the year ending July 1, 1930, the most important adjustments were up- 
ward revisions in rates of wages for those employed in the bridge and building 
department and in the signal maintenance service on the Boston & Maine Rail- 
road. The rates of wages for employees of the Boston, Revere & Lynn Railroad 
were changed from a daily to an hourly basis for all those specified in this report. 

Engine and train service employees of the three trunk lines receive compensation 
based on mileage covered, with certain rates of wages guaranteed. For the indi- 
vidual occupations in other services, where more than one rate applies, maximum 
and minimum rates to be paid are specified. Eight consecutive hours constitute 
a day's work in all crafts, and Sunday and holiday work is on a straight time basis 
if called for by regular assignments. Overtime in all services covered is on a pro- 
rata actual-minute basis. Railway shopmen are paid at the rate of time and one- 
half for all overtime, with a minimum of one hour's pay for any such service per- 
formed; station employees are paid straight time for the ninth hour and time and 
one-half thereafter; whereas, maintenance of way employees, railway shop labor- 
ers, and railroad signalmen are on straight time through the tenth hour and are 
then paid at the rate of time and one-half. 

Motormen and guards employed in the operating departments of the Boston, 
Revere Beach & Lynn Railroad receive no additional compensation for overtime, 
while those in the mechanical and maintenance of way services are paid at the rate 
of time and one-half after eight hours. The employees of the Boston Terminal 
Company are paid at the rate of time and one-half for overtime outside of bulletin 
hours. 

A 48-hour or 56-hour (6 or 7 day) weekly schedule depends upon the nature of 
the work performed. The former schedule is the one generally in effect on all four 
railroads named. The Boston Terminal Company male employees are on a 56- 
hour basis. The rates of pay and hours of labor applicable to employees of the 
three main lines operating out of Boston are effective over the entire systems, and 
not simply over those divisions which are within the confines of this Commonwealth.

1 The following regulations apply to trainmen employed on the three trunk lines operating out of Boston: 

In all passenger service, 150 miles or less constitute a day's work. Miles in excess of 150 are paid for pro rata. 
Daily rates obtain until the miles made at the mileage rates exceed the daily minimum. 

On short turn-around passenger runs, trainmen are paid overtime on a pro rata basis for all time actually 
on duty in excess of 8 hours within 10 consecutive hours. On other passenger runs, overtime, on a pro rata 
basis, does not begin until the expiration of the run, computed on a speed basis of twenty miles per hour, or until 
the expiration of seven hours and thirty minutes on duty. 

In all classes of freight service, 100 miles or less, 8 hours or less constitute a day's work. Miles in excess of 
100 are paid for pro rata. On runs of 100 miles or less, overtime, at the rate of time and one-half, does not begin 
until the expiration of 8 hours. On runs of over 100 miles, overtime does not begin until the time on duty 
exceeds the miles run, divided by 12J^. 

In switching service, 8 hours or less constitute a day's work. All time in excess of 8 hours is paid for at one 
and one-half times the hourly rate. 

s This rate also applies to operators of gas rail busses on the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad.

Street and Electric Railway Service. 

The employees of street and electric railway companies are divided, broadly, 
into two classes, — those in the passenger service, or "blue uniform" men, and those 
employed in what may properly be known as construction, maintenance, and repair 
service. Rates of wages, hours of labor, and other conditions of employment 
applicable to such men are, in most instances, the result of formal agreements be- 
tween the street railway line and labor organizations. 

The employment of uniformed men is governed by schedules drawn up by offi- 
cials of the companies. These schedules provide that a certain number of runs or 
trips shall be made daily, over stated routes, taking into consideration the morning 
and evening rush hour "peak" loads. Seniority governs the selecting of runs and 
the employment of the men. The daily and weekly hours of labor of other than 
uniformed men vary with the nature of the work performed. 

The information with reference to operators of passenger busses maintained by 
street and electric railway companies has been enlarged upon because of the growing 
importance of this means of transportation. 1

Passenger Bus Service. 



During the past few years there has been a rapid increase in automobile bus 
service rendered in conjunction with or superseding street railway lines, and there 
are also a number of bus lines directly competing with certain railroad branch 
and through lines. In addition, passenger busses now operate over routes not here- 
tofore traversed by any of the former means of transportation. 

As of July 1, 1930, those companies licensed by the State Department of Public 
Utilities to operate in Massachusetts were requested to furnish this office with in- 
formation concerning the rates of pay and scheduled hours of labor of their em- 
ployees. 1 The excellence of the returns enables the Department to present in 
Table 19 data for twenty-six passenger bus companies which operate on definite 
schedules over stated routes. No information is presented for the "tourist" or 
"sight-seeing" bus companies.

Telephone Service. 
The data presented in this section were furnished by the New England Telephone 
and Telegraph Company as of July 1, 1930. The rates shown apply to clerical 
employees and to telephone switchboard operators within the jurisdiction of the 
Boston headquarters, covered by the several schedules indicated. In previous 
years it has been possible to show the returns for manual employees, but certain 
involved changes have occurred and any presentation of rates now in effect for such 
employees would be liable to misinterpretation, because of the fact that much of 
the work is of a nature peculiar to telephone service.

of Labor Organizations in 
Massachusetts, 1931 

(Labor Bulletin No. 163) 
PART I 

OF THE 

ANNUAL REPORT on the STATISTICS OF LABOR 
for the Year Ending November 30, 1931 

Department of Labor and Industries 




THIRTIETH ANNUAL 

Directory of Labor Organizations 
in Massachusetts, 1931 



INTRODUCTION 

The matter presented herewith constitutes the Thirtieth Annual Directory 
of Labor Organizations in Massachusetts, the first directory of this character 
having been published in August, .1902. )* Labor organizations, within the mean- 
ing of this publication, are groups of wage-earners organized for the purpose 
of bettering conditions of workmen through negotiations with employers, and, 
to this end, are usually parties to either written or verbal agreements concerning 
wages and conditions of employment. 

The present edition consists of four divisions, as follows: 

I. "National and International Organizations," having one or more affili- 
ated local unions in the United States (pages 3-7) ; 

II. "State and District Councils," consisting of organizations composed 
of delegates from local unions whose members are in trades of a like character 
within a definite district comprising more than a single city or town (pages 
8-12), 

III. "Central Labor Unions and Local Councils," composed of delegates 
from local unions in the same locality, not necessarily in similar trades (pages 
13-18) ; 

IV. "Local Trade Unions," composed of wage-earners in a single locality 
directly associated in what may be called the "unit body" of organization (pages 
19-76) ; 

At the close of December each year a general canvass is made for the 
data which appear in this directory. Each National and International Labor 
Organization known to be in existence in the United States (see Section I) 
is requested to furnish the Department with the name and address of its 
corresponding official and a list of any Massachusetts locals affiliated, together 
with the names and addresses of certain officials of such local unions. From 
the State and District Councils (see Section II) and the Central Labor Unions 
and Local Councils (see Section III) in Massachusetts, somewhat similar data 
are secured. Each local organization known to be in existence, whether or not 
chartered by an International or a National organization, is canvassed, and 
detailed information secured as to the time and place of meeting, the names and 
addresses of corresponding and other officials, and other relevant data (see 
Section IV). 2 

Officials of those organizations from whom no report was received in re- 
sponse to the original request were visited by the field agents of the Division, 

1 Prior editions of the directory have been published in the Labor Bulletins, as 
follows: 1902, No. 23 and No. 24 (reprint of No. 23); 1904, No. 33; 1905, No. 37; 1906, 
No. 43; 1907, No. 52; 1908, No. 61; 1909, No. 68; 1910, No. 76; 1911, No. 83; 1912, No. 
93; 1913, No. 94; 1914, No. 98; 1915, No. 106; 1916, No. 113; 1917, No. 119; 1918, No. 
123; 1919, No. 127; 1920, No. 130; 1921, No. 133; 1922, No. 136; 1923, No. 139; 1924. 
No. 142; 1925, No. 145; 1926, No. 148; 1927, No. 151; 1928, No. 154; 1929, No. 157; 1930, 
No. 160. 

•The total number of organizations listed in this directory is 1,593 of which number 
137 are national and international organizations, 65 state and district councils, 105 
central labor unions and councils, and 1,286 local trade unions.

and the necessary data secured. There were also ascertained from various 
sources facts with reference to the forming of new unions and the disbanding 
of those formerly active. At the time of going to press, there were incorporated 
in this issue any changes in officials, in the time and place of meeting, etc., which 
had come to the attention of the Department since the original canvass was made. 
Subsequent changes cannot, of course, be made in this report, but are on record 
where known. Officials of organizations listed herein are urged to advise the 
Department of any such changes as they occur. The Department makes every 
effort to issue the directory as early in the year as possible, as much of its 
usefulness depends upon the promptness with which it is issued. In this endeavor 
we have had the cordial co-operation of the labor officials throughout the State.
